Museums, History and Culture in Malaysia
Abu Talib Ahmad
Since many museums worldwide enjoy state patronage, it is hardly surprising that they reflect a history viewed through the prism of the politics of the day. Malaysia follows this trend. Here the author analyses not only the exhibits of the National Museum, but those in various states as well as national memorials and museum publications to determine the differing versions of the nation's history presented to the public. In addition, the author interviewed serving and retired museum officials to supplement his personal observations. 328 pages with a bibliography and index.
